So what does Cloud Console for Android mean for managed service providers (MSPs)? This app allows users to control a solution running on Google Cloud Platform directly from an Android phone or tablet and could help service technicians view and manage incidents tracked in Google Cloud Monitoring.
“Cloud Console for Android integrates with Cloud Monitoring, enabling automated incident tracking when system metrics deviate,” Google Product Manager Michael Thomsen wrote in a blog post. “You can configure alerts to display directly in the Android notification drawer, and you can comment so that your team knows you’re working on the issue.”
In addition, Google pointed out that Cloud Console for Android users can:
Check the state of Google App Engine or Compute Engine resources
Create a custom dashboard to get a solution overview
Take actions directly from a mobile device
Cloud Console for Android is currently in beta and available for download on the Google Play store. Also, Google said it expects to launch an iOS version later this year.
Google continues to explore new ways to support MSPs as well.
For example, Google updated its Google Cloud Platform Partner Program for MSPs and value-added resellers (VARs) earlier this year. The cloud computing giant said its revamped partner program allows participants to “build their practices or products on the Google Cloud Platform, and to support and recognize participants as they reach higher levels of success.”
Full details about the Google Cloud Platform Partner Program are available here.
